Beijing envoy says Kim Jong Un's China visit will help toward denuclearization

29 March 2018

"China and North Korea maintaining their friendly relations provides a positive force for the whole region and promotes strategic stability in northeast Asia", it said in an editorial.

It said Xi had accepted an invitation "with pleasure" to visit North Korea.

Well, according to China's media reports, Kim used "denuclearization" at least twice, which should give hope to both the United States and South Korea who are hoping to hold talks with Kim in the next two months.

Suga welcomed plans for an April 27 meeting between the leaders of the two Koreas as a sign of progress resulting from worldwide pressure on North Korea.

The worldwide speculation over the "green train", in which Kim Jong-un travelled from Pyongyang to Beijing and back has ended with Xinhua putting out visuals of Xi Jinping greeting the North Korean leader at the Great Hall of the People.

Pyongyang was willing to have a dialogue with the USA and hold a summit of the two countries, he said.

Four-day school week?
School Board President Barb Clementi voted against the measure. "I think those are the big points we are going to make", he said. Beginning in the next school year, students in a Colorado district may only be attending class four days a week instead of five.

Overall, you can say that it was a secret meeting and the two men held talks at the imposing Great Hall of the People during which they hailed their nations' historic relations, with Kim pledging that he was "committed to the denuclearization".

It is also believed that Kim Jong-Un uses the luxury train for domestic journeys too - in contrast to his father exclusively using it as a means of getting around his fear of flying.

Speculation about a high-ranking official from Pyongyang visiting Beijing circulated on social media earlier in the week after Japan's Kyodo News showed a North Korean train travelling into China.

Relations between the two countries have been strained after Beijing beefed up United Nations sanctions by blocking essential supplies like oil and coal following pressure from Trump.

In a series of tweets, Trump shares how he feels about a reported meeting with Kim, who recently travelled on a special train to China to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. China felt left out of the loop as far as the nuclear programme was concerned.

Any meeting at the Panmunjom village could also be off the table. Few other details were released.

'Gerrymandering' returns before US Supreme Court
Breyer's comment is a sign that the justices haven't figured out the Wisconsin case in the almost six months since it was argued. If so, they could use their control over the election maps to give Democrats a decade-long advantage in Congress.

However, Trump said that sanctions on North Korea will remain in place for the time being.

Kim arrived in Beijing on Sunday for a four-day trip, thought to be his first global visit since becoming North Korea's leader in 2011.

The President also tweeted optimism that Kim will "do what is right for his people and for humanity". High-level inter-Korean talks are held at Panmunjom today.

The North's delegation is led by Ri Son Gwon, chairman of an agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs.

Beijing had appeared sidelined by Pyongyang's approaches to Seoul and Washington, but Kim's visit puts China firmly back at the centre of the diplomatic game. The efforts of Moon Jae-in bore fruit when Kim Jong-un finally agreed to attend a summit with Donald Trump.

What's more, some light rain may reach parts of Berks County, the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos sometime during the evening rush. A few more weather disturbances could slide in early next week providing at least a small chance of pockets of light snow.
